Hi Folks;

>> I have a mixed wired/wireless network in my home, composed of a _Windoze
>> 2K server_ (wired), an_ Ubuntu Linux tower_ (wired, relatively new, can
>> use as an experimental lab...), an _Ubuntu Linux laptop_ (wireless) I've
>> been using for nearly a year, and several visiting family members with
>> _wireless Windoze laptops_ who occasionally hook into my network.
>> Problem: All the Linux machines, and the visiting Windoze laptops, can

>> I want to learn basic networking and file/application sharing from the
>> Linux end, because, I eventually want to do away with Windows entirely

>> visitors, who will also still need to access my then-all-Linux network.
>> File sharing in/with Windoze/NTFS is relatively easy, but at the cost of

Thanks, but it didn't help much.  I have samba installed on both linux 
machines, and also have selected files shared on both.  The tower knows 
the laptop is there, but can't access anything from it, but the laptop 
doesn't know the tower exists.  Again, both can see and share from the 
Windoze tower...
